Moon Dong-joo went out as a starting pitcher in an away game against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 13th, and was sluggish with 7 hits, 3 walks, 2 walks and 7 runs in 2⅓ innings. It was also the first time since his debut that he failed to strike out a single game in a start.
The 7 runs are the most runs in one game by Moon Dong-joo, who entered the professional league last year. The previous record for most runs was 4 runs, which was recorded 4 times in total. In addition, Moon Dong-ju’s ERA soared from 2.28 to 4.20.Moon Dong-ju, who took the mound for the team’s 4th straight win in 3 years, threw the most poorly. At the beginning of the first inning, the Hanwha line-up scored 3 points and lightened the shoulders of the starting pitcher, but Moon Dong-ju showed a difficult game and was beaten by the SSG line-up. Of the total number of pitches, 73, 38 were balls, more than half.
Moon Dong-ju was greatly shaken from the start. In the bottom of the first inning, Choi Ji-hoon and Choi Joo-hwan hit consecutive hits, and Choi Jeong was treated as a fly to left field, but Guillermo Heredia allowed a walk, bringing the bases full.
After Moon Dong-joo was right-handed by Hanyu-seom with an RBI, he induced Park Seong-han to ground the ball to the second baseman, but due to the double hit, the batting speed was slow, so the Hanwha infield could not double-kill it.
Moon Dong-ju, who blocked the bottom of the second inning with no runs, collapsed in the bottom of the third.
Moon Dong-joo, who hit the left arm of lead hitter Choi Jeong, sent Hanyu-seom out with a ball that hit the body at first base. As if his mentality was shaken, Moon Dong-ju threw 4 balls in a row against Park Seong-han and drove to the bases loaded.
Didn’t follow any luck here. Moon Dong-joo allowed Kim Seong-hyeon to hit the pitcher in front of the pitcher to tie the game 3-3, and Lee Jung-beom walked, and Kim Min-sik got an infield hit in front of the first baseman when the bases were loaded again. Moon Dong-joo entered the first base cover, but the step was twisted and he could not step on the base before the batter.
Afterwards, Moon Dong-ju was beaten by Choi Ji-hoon with a two-run double through left-center, and the score was 3-7, and the Hanwha bench decided to change the pitcher.
Fortunately, there were no additional runs by Moon Dong-ju. 2nd pitcher Kim Ki-joong, who made a relief mound from 1 out, 2nd and 3rd base, hit Choi Joo-hwan and faced a bases loaded crisis, but Choi Kyung-mo and Heredia returned to second baseman infield fly and struck out, respectively, and ended the inning.
